    He didn't, but that's okay. I think most reasonable ppl are tuning you out by now on this.

    And again... how do you feel about the actually serious Lewandowski and Gianforte assault incidents? Still got nothing to say on those? Alrighty then.

    Acosta stands his ground, by barely making contact with the forearm of an intern, and gets banned by a guy that forcefully grabs women by their genitals. Have I gotten the basics?

    It wasn't even standing his ground. To me, it looked like he was just talking with his hands, and not paying attention to the intern reaching in front of him.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    What you witnessed there was Trump's idea of "reaching across the aisle".

    Could be. Or could just be spontaneous reaction to someone pushing their hand in front of your face.

    If only he just grabbed her by the pu$$y. Trump would've high 5'ved him they'd be bud's.

    Sums it up. Though you forgot the "and brags about it" part.

    This is definitely the most ridiculous thread I've ever been in in PO, or close. And that's sayin' somethin'... I used to debate AM666 all the time, after all.

    You guys have gone in so many spiraling circles even the OP forgot what the OP was about.

    The point is that the White House used a doctored video to misrepresent an event and support their narrative. A secondary point could be that they take hoax videos from nonreputable sources to do so.

    That's the issue. The far right trolls of this board consistently lay bread crumbs in obfuscating and non sensical paths and everyone else just follows them around like little pigeons. Fool me once...

    Deflection noted.
    The subject was PRESS CONFERENCES. Trump had 1. Obama 11. You can not deny that. And no 1 is not greater than 11. And yes Trump plays more golf.

    Trump taking questions from reporters in the "pool," a rotation of reporters who follow the president's movements and send the information out to the rest of the press is different than a formal press conference, which provide an opportunity for the broader White House press corps to ask their questions.

    "Contact" is not "Conference"

    Pretending that being interview by his propaganda mouthpiece is a "Press Conference" is comical.....and desperate.

    The point of the thread is to badmouth Trump.

    But jimb100 is 100% correct. Ask the intern. Was she assaulted? If she says yes, liberals have no choice but the believe her.

    But they will of course try to sidestep the question entirely. Like I said before, hypocrisy and double standards are to liberals like 2x4s are to people that build houses.
    Whenever the legislators endeavour to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence - John Locke

    Whelp you can shut the thread down Trump just said what Acosta did wasn't "horrible" and wasn't the reason the credentials were pulled. So the reason Sanders gave and then made a point of posting the doctored video is now mute.

    He also explained that more may be pulled if the press doesn't show more respect, then he called a journalist's question stupid (narrator: it wasn't) and called another one a loser.

    On the lackey in the AG office, Trump "doesn't know him. He was always exteremely highly thought of" (narrator: He isn't) Of course in an interview in October he said, "I can tell you Matt Whitaker is a great guy. I know him." My guessing he does indeed know him since he met with him more than a dozen times when he was with the keebler Elf he put on a shelf.
    In the time of battle you don't rise to the occasion you resort to the level of your conditioning...

    Yes. Hilary was on the recent revision committee. Bill pressured her to cut that part.

    But this gets back to the "Why We Post" question; it's partly to address those who may stumble in here, partly to examine our own POVs in the crucible of discourse and to have others question those views, and TBH, partly to rehearse, so that when some sonofab!tch at a cocktail party or the office starts going off on some addle-headed discourse about "how things are," well, we've got our knowledge hammers at the ready to smack 'em down!

    Others' mileage may vary.
    good answer.

    Rarely is jimbo correct, but he's always right... of center, far right actually. Ask yourself this, who put their hands on the other first?

    To summarize

    *Trump makes an a$$ of himself once again
    *His paid liar puts out an edited video, and fake narrative, to deflect from Trump being an a$$
    *His loyal followers buy his lies and parrot them

    No he didn't, he was interrupted by Trumpstool, and then insulted by Trumpstool.

    I posted as much, so please don't miscast my words.

    This bears repeating, in boldface:

    Here’s the thing: it doesn’t really matter if the video was doctored or not. The bigger issue here is that the President of the United States continually and aggressively ridicules and evades the free press in this country, to the point of suspending access to one of the nation’s most prominent journalists simply for asking a question. And the White House is using a few seconds of physical contact as an excuse to try to silence press they don’t like.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    Because that's how long it took for Trump to begin confronting, insulting, and interrupting him.

    BTW... is the "official" time allotment documented somewhere? In this case, it had zero to do with time allotment and 100% to do with avoiding questions.

    None are screaming (though your attempt to characterize the people you're disagreeing with in a negative light is noted--is that your version of "civility?") but plenty know the truth about what happened, people who were there to see.

    Ignore all that if you wish, it won't change a thing.
